What a nite

I had a sleepless night yesterday! Phone ringing non-stop from mid-night on and off till about 6 am.
Worst still, i switched room with Kit coz i gotta study (burning mid-night oil). And the room i slept in last night, was the computer room..with the phone beside me..so i was the one to answer the phone all nite before i handed over to MIL...
imagine...i am like a zombie now eh...can't focus a thing...plus..today is HOT HOT HOT!!!!

Well, bad news we have ... MIL's mom passed away this morning around 12.30 am... umm i think she is 80 plus..heart beat stop suddenly.
So, phone calls from Kit's elder bro all the way from K.L. and tried to discuss how and when PIL are going back for the funeral.
Amazingly, they went to work this morning....
MIL looked okie outside, i mean facial reaction...but i can tell deep down..she is sad, hurt and i dunno what words to explain for a person to loose a mother.
I understand her feelings..coz i lost my mom when i was 14.
So, even though her mom was like 80 plus...but a mom still a mom! MIL tried to be tough in front of everyone...but obviously..i can tell how she felt!

This morning, around 5 plus am... SIL called discussing abt air fares...well, times like this those agencies sure take the golden opportunity to cut your throat..the fare is doubled the normal rate.
So, MIL very upset abt the price of the airfare...
they are very umm....how to say....just let say..money is very important to them. Until now i still not sure that they are going back or not...coz they just left for work after talking to SIL. Hmm..will find out tonite.

U know...i felt like giving her a hug...but there are voices telling me not to. She probably won't like it...not her style i guess... They don't hug! or comfort...they just wanna act tough! u know..typical chinese style.

I have met Kit's Grandma once..like way b4 we got married..like the first time i met Kit and family back in 2000.
She was a great woman and very humble.

Everyone is sad about this news.
God bless her soul.....


*** Yawning***.. i am very sleepyyyyyyyyyyy....still need to finish off my assignment..have to hand next week...last day is next thursday!
GOOD LUCK to me...
